For Districts and Campuses
HB 3 Reading Academies
House Bill 3 (HB 3), passed by the 86th Legislature in June 2019, requires all kindergarten through third grade teachers and principals attend a "teacher literacy achievement academy" by the 2022-2023 school year. This includes special education teachers, literacy specialists who see K-3 students in small groups, and K-3 departmentalized teachers.
The purpose is to increase teacher knowledge and implementation of evidence-based practices to positively impact student literacy achievement.
